But we will be adding around 170 Mbs of stuff who is presently sitting
in the differentials directory.  About compression it will not work:
in fact RPMS are a compressed CPIOs appended to a header so
compressing them gains nothing.  I can get gain some 50 megs by moving
docs to another CD but we will still be over one CD.
